GW2 Sale anywhere?

MargraveMargrave Member UncommonPosts: 945
I remember a time when it was just $9.99.

Got a friend interested now that mounts are coming, but he's only willing to spend $9.99, and then if he sticks with it he says he would then buy the expansions.

Does anyone know of a site that offers it for $9.99 currently? I can't find it for that anywhere?

Thanks.

    They merged the base game with the first expansion (Heart of thorns) claiming that new players would get the base game for "free" that way when they bought the expansion. To my knowledge you can't buy the base game separate anymore.

    Base game is still free to play, just create an account download the game and you try the first part of the new expansion for free this weekend, rest of vanilla game are free.
    If he enjoy the game he can buy the expansion full price and get heart of Thorn as well plus all the benefits from vanilla

    From what I remember about the introduction video they said they will offer a discounted bundle for both expansion together.

    You need to buy the bundle to get both.
    Path of Fire + HoT = 50 dollars (full price for the entire game)
    If you already own Hot or if you simply don't want it, you get a 20 dollars discount hence getting the game for 30 dollars.

    If you have already bought PoF and missed the chance to get HoT in the bundle you can contact ArenaNet to fix that for you, they have a very helpful costumer support; assuming that you actually want to buy HoT bundeled.

    Your comments about this game are always just plain hateful, wrong and not helpful at all.

    You can buy HoT for $12.80 and PoF for $26.40 on cdkeys.com

    Not a bad price at all for both expansions.

    Never heard of this site. Sounds shady. OP just buy it through the official channels. If your account is ever compromised it's easier to recover.

    Oddly enough, I am truly hoping this expansion accomplishes what HoT did not. I might buy it.

    It is shady as hell. It's a 3rd party CD Key site that sells keys bought through stolen credit cards as a money laundering scheme.   Polygon did an in-depth look at those kinds of sites a year or so back and nothing looked good.

    Plus, it's $29.99 for the basic PoF version and $19.99 for the basic HoT version. Is it really worth possibly having your account compromised, credit card info stolen, and money lost over a lousy savings of $10.78?

    cd.keys is a good site, not like some of the others. I've had no issues with them.
